Chatter away, friends!  

I just don't believe Viglink is working.

How is it possible for me to be on Wizzley for an entire year, and today I got my first Viglink click. I'm not talking about a sale. I'm talking about a click.

Here's the thing. I am earning from Viglink - for referrals. I referred people to Viglink about two months ago on my writing blog. They are earning money because I am being paid a commission on their earnings, but not a single click (well, except for one today) have I received.

Here's what I don't understand.

On my referral link, there's a reference number. Yet, on Wizzley, at the Viglink settings, it just asks for my email. Nor can I find any account number for Viglink. What am I missing?

The other things is that in the last ten days I've had 196 clicks for Amazon and three sales. Yet, I don't get anything for Last month I had 183 clicks for Amazon and 8 sales. But in a year, not a single click for Viglink? 

Oh, I am getting traffic. Undoubtedly.

So whta is wrong. Even if people were just plain curious, they would have clicked once or twice or six times in a month. For people not to click for an entire year? I'm sorry, there is something wrong

Please can you check this.

Have you signed up for a VigLink account using the link we provide? Independently created VigLink accounts don't work on Wizzley.

We have no way of knowing if the account email you provided was indeed created as a Wizzley sub-account. If you are sure you did everything correctly then please ask VigLink support if they show you as having a Wizzley sub-account.

I think that may be my problem, nightowl. How do we add Wizzley to that account?

I take that back. I've made $1.73 over the last year.

Nightowl, I don't know. I signed up as a result of finding out about it on Wizzley, but I have no idea whether i used the wizzley link or not. How would I know?

If you look under the "Install" button in your VigLink dashboard, it should say

"VigLink is already installed on your Parent sites..."

If you're seeing a code snippet instead then you have an independent account. In this case you need to re-apply using the link we provide.

I am having issues too getting viglink to work, I created an independent account through the link in the account settings area, I have placed the email address in the box, and on the Viglink account page it say I am installed.

But I do not see a box to check on individual pages, and if I try to build a link, the entire code shows up, not the clickable word.

I have also tried just the generic ebay amazon, wall mart, nothing is being converted into a link there either.

I have used Viglink now for a while, with a separate account, on my blogs and other sites with some success, with more time and articles they have a real substantial income potential.

Any help would be appreciated.

I'm not sure I understand the question. There is no check box on articles for VigLink. If you set up your account with them through our link, and entered the corresponding email address into the settings, you're all set.

To build a text link manually, you can use the link button in the text editor. Highlight the word you want to be "clickable", push the "chain" icon, enter the URL, and you're done.

If you want to input HTML code, you must go to the HTML editor. There is a button on the top right corner of the editor that will take you there.

If you use our modules for eBay, the links will be automatically routed through VigLink. Keep in mind that you don't see the actual viglinks just by hovering over them.

Thank you, all is figured out now, I had assumed I couldn't edit the HTML.

Also your quick response is very impressive, normally I feel lucky to even receive a response at all from Admin on other content writing sites.
